you. jon: we still have debt deadlock on capitol hill with the default deadline just eight days away now. congressional leaders are still struggling to hammer out some kind of a deal, one that would raise the limit on our nation's credit card while cutting trillions of dollars in spending. house speaker john boehner may unveil his own bill today. harry reid said it would be a nonstarter. wendell goler is live on the north lawn with more. >> reporter: speaker boehner's plan would take the spending cuts agreed to before talks with vice joe biden broke down and raise the debt ceiling a little less than that. it would satisfy the speakers bottom line which is cutting spending more than the debt ceiling is raids but we'd have to go through this all over again by the end of the year. the speaker said yesterday it would solve the immediate crisis. >> there is going to be a two-stage process. it's not physically possible to do all of this in one step. having said that, chris, i know the president is worried about his next election, but my god shouldn't we be worried about the country? >> rep

a weak debate and bachmann is dominating headlines. he'll raise between 4 and 5 million-dollar. jon huntsman can raise g.o.p. bucks. herman cain has strong tea party support but little fund fundraig prowess. >> in six hours they have to stop taking contributions. when its added up next fall and look at the special interest money there's a 2 to $3 billion campaign. >> it looks like tim pawlenty and jon huntsman will be the same money total. >> that's right. the difference being pawlenty is the entire three months and jon huntsman just got in. his $4.1 million raised which he doesn't have to file for a is a good achievement so quick. >> bret: in tonight's segment on -- saving the economy, a look at federal regulations. the time it takes to implement them. shannon bream reports if there's a certainty, it's uncertainty. >> in the next ten years, maybe more, investors, entrepreneurs, business owners, are going to be in limbo. >> reporter: each time a federal law is passed regulations that outline the law are issued by agencies but that takes a great deal of time, especially when it comes
not expect. jon huntsman said in may he would not self-finance his presidential campaign even though he's rich enough to do that, at least in large part. today he didn't have to file any campaign fund-raising information, because he hasn't been declared for very long, but did say he raised about $4 million and his campaign would just say that he did contribute to his own coffering here. all they'll say, it wasn't a majority. only that what he gave is less than half. jon huntsman is, at least, sort of self-financing here and declaring it, and letting it be known. is that worrying in terms of his chances as a real candidate or encouraging because he has his own money to spend if he wants to? >> first of all, i don't understand the original statement. don't make a statement that you know can be disproved when the sec reports come out. and in terms of his fund-raising, i'm inclined to say, wait until the next cycle. i mean, jon huntsman has only been around for a little bit. i think his opening is that republicans who are not bachmann republicans decide that in the end he might have a bette
of the rest of the pack. jon huntsman, we can mention, he also has a pretty big fund-raising hall for a guy that not a lot of people know about. $4 million. we should mention half of that, though, is money he kicked in himself. he is part of a very wealthy family that owns a chemical company out there in utah. so not too surprising there. one thing we can tell you this morning is that president obama's re-election campaign, they are very proud of the fact that they have a roughly $490,000 contributors who have donated so far to the president's campaign. that is a number that they are tweeting out and getting out today. that is way more than he had back in 2007. of course, not too surprising back then. he was sort of a long shot for the white house. speaking of presidential runs. we should mention that we are getting reports and we are expecting to see thad mccarter, a congressman from michigan. he is well known up in michigan and well known in tea party circles. he is expected to file his paper work today to run for president. mccotter plays the guitar. so we might see him out on the campai
karl is in washington and has more on all this. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. there is no presidential candidate with more momentum right now than michele bachmann. ♪ my home in -- >> reporter: no republican presidential candidate has taken a harder line on the debt ceiling showdown than michele bachmann. >> we were all shocked and appalled that president obama dangled out in front of the cameras that senior citizens may not get their checks. that's a very dangerous statement to make. we don't believe -- excuse me. excuse me. we don't believe that for a moment. >> reporter: tough talk from bachmann is nothing new but she now speaks with new-found authority as a top tier contender for the republican presidential nomination. a new national poll puts bachmann firmly in second place as the leading challenger to front-runner mitt romney. and in key first caucus state iowa, three separate polls over the past week put bachmann in first place. >> republican primary voters are looking for somebody who has -- brings some excitement, who brings something different to t
, jon huntsman changed the stewardship with a manager matt david. former aide to schwarzenegger and veteran of the bush and mccain campaign. he plans to step up criticism of the rival; particularly, romney, and quote indictment of obama's record in new hampshire, buddy romer launched his bid. democrat in congress before becoming republican as governor in '91, a longshot yet to show up in the polls with little name recognition or cash. the story of the poll is perry, who without entering the race is battling for the lead and picking up steam in washington, carl cameron, fox news. >> bret: speaking of "steam," the soaring temperatures that plagued the midwest for much of the week have spread further east. look at this. the heat indexes. forecasters have issued excessive heat warning for huge section of the country from kansas, to massachusetts. nearly two dozen deaths have been blamed on the temperatures. the national weather service expects triple-digit temperatures in the eastern part of the country through saturday before cooling off to the mid-90s on sunday. >>> u.s. ambassado
are glad to see him come. >>> next up, where is the loyalty? a one-time chief of staff to jon huntsman has passed over his former boss and endorsed mitt romney. his reasoning -- he's uniquely positioned to beat barack obama. he broke the news it was a little awkward. >>> speaking of awkward, it was just personal. apparently in new jersey last week governor chris christie used his line-item veto to strike funding for certainly health and social programs. the reaction from steve sweeney -- i wanted to punch him in his head. you know who he reminds me you have? mr. potter from "it's a wonderful life." that's what senator convenery called him. they're a longtime bipartisan allies. they put out a statement yesterday while saying wheel sweeney's comments were disrespectful, christie stands ready to work with him going forward. >>> the number of women in congress dropped for the first time in 30 years. whatever reason, the new york rising star, senator kirsten jill brand wants to reverse that trend. she joints us next. you're watching "hardball," only on msnbc. >> he was a good-looking guy before
for jon huntsman. new polling puts the former ambassador at the back of the pack which could be why the white house seems to be focussing on a different exgovernor. at the bloomberg breakfast david, senior obama advisor took aim at mitt romney calling him a world class distortionist. i was sitting there at that breakfast. you don't expect direct answers to questions, but this was just tloup out there -- thrown out there. clearly they think that he is the guy to beat. >> i think there's no question that romney's stronger today than most i think professional class folks would have thought he would have been two months ago. the fundraising isn't as small as it was last cycle for romney it's stronger than the rest of the field. he's in strong position in new hampshire. he's the front runner. test hooth unbeatable. right now i don't think we have a candidate that's putting a strong challenge to romney. i think that's mie perry has a chance. >> if you talk to white house people they say it's an uncertain field. they don't know what rick perry is going to do. they don't know the michele ba

's bring in jake tapper and jon karl from capitol hill. jon, they tried to work on a smaller reduction deal but that didn't go much better. >> reporter: the divide is as deep as ever. they outlined 1.7trillion cuts, not enough but democrats called it completely unacceptable because it included cuts to medicare and no tax revenue increases. steny hoyer said he couldn't get a senior democratic vote for a plan. >> that means that it couldn't pass. courthouse have any idnew ideas >> reporter: they're pushing for the big deal, a lot of pain at one, entitle tks. president obama outlined the plan and said, you can't expect seniors to give up $500 when you went own ask for $5 from people like me. wealthy individuals. >> jon, the leader mitchell mcconnell is looking at a contingency plan which could be a short-term extension. >> reporter: he's tight-lipped about what they mean. they could give him a chance to accept that which he ruled out or one with no tax increases. >> the president very clear on that. >> reporter: he said he's not signing any short-term plans. the debt ceiling needs to be raised
the "sunday times" of london and his company stock is sinking. how bad will this get? jon stewart and british ex-pass had fun, a lot of fun, actually, with the murdoch story. that's on the "sideshow" tonight. eugene robin sons, of course he won the pulitzer prizewinning there and ron reagan. and a political fight was quite relatable to real people in the country who don't normally watch political programs like this, but will be very much affected by what we talk about in the next couple of minutes. let's listen to the president. >> can you tell the folks at home that no matter what happens, the social security checks are going to go out on august the 3rd? about $20 billion of social security checks that have to go out the day after the government is supposedly going to go into default. >> this is not just a matter of social security checks. these are veterans checks, these are folks on disability and their checks. they're about 70 million checks that go out. each month. >> can you guarantee as president those checks will go out on august 3rd? >> i cannot guarantee those checks go out on augus
. >> reporter: jon huntsman? >> he's refreshingly kind of -- comes across as non-ideological. conservative, but practical. i think governor romney's doing a better job as a candidate this time than he did four years ago. i'm not surprised by how well michele bachmann's done. i've been watching her speak. she comes across as a real person. >> reporter: ever the political junkie. jake tapper, abc news, chicago. >>> and one of the reasons michele bachmann comes across as a real person is because she's willing to share so much about her personal life. last night, she opened up about suffering a miscarriage, a first for a presidential candidate. abc's sharyn alfonsi has more on the candidate who is putting her family's struggles and joys at the center of her campaign. >> reporter: it happened at a packed town hall meeting in south carolina. >> after our second chchd was born, we became pregnant with a third baby. and it was an unexpected baby, but of course we were delighted to have this child. and the child was coming along, and we ended up losing that child. >>>>eporter: the crowd stood still

jon kyl from arizona. as you know, he was part of the talk with vice president biden said that text revenue -- tax revenue increases have been on the table. not tax increase but the tax revenue have. listen to this and i want you to respond. >> it has been on the table. we have been talking about increased revenues. we're not talking about increasing taxes. if the government sells something and gets money from it, that is revenue. if there is a user fee of some kind. if we want to raise it to keep up with the times, that is revenue. if you add up the revenues that we have agreed to, we republicans agreed to, it's between 150 and $200 billion. >> bret: so the statement that republicans are putting a gun to the head that they are not coming to the table with anything, is that disingenuous? >> well, listen, i was obviously at the table for the biden talks. we have a commitment we don't talk about what was said and not said in the room. i think there is no question that you have had many republican leaders make comments like no revenues at all. if that is wrong, we welcome that. as the
comedians like jon stewart had a lot of fun with that on "the daily show." >> i think this man's views are terrible. and he dances and sounds not only gay but center square gay. >> i mean, lz, is stuff like that fair? >> i don't know if it's fair to insinuate that michele bachmann's husband is gay. but i have to chuckle because there are moments that i don't know if i'm listening to him or to cameron from "modern family." there's definitely some humor to be had lehere. these clinics are sending a very bad message, not just to people who are gobt, but people who are allies in the fight for ending homo phobia. >> let's talk about the bigger picture here. will, i'm wondering if bachmann and sarah palin get all the attention nowadays, but the man with the moneyresume, and we're talking about mitt romney, is really off the radar. is he just standing by because it's early on and letting the crazy play out? >> yeah. i think so, don. i think it's a smart strategy. also i'd add john huntsman to that group as well. they are sitting back kind of above the fray, and letting the silliness fly. let'
but not taking part in the ames straw poll. jon huntsman is the same way. viewing iowa not necessary to his path. is that a dangerous move? >> i think is it very dangerous. if you look to the last cycle and think what happened with rudy giuliani and the guys that decided we can bypass the social conservative, a fool's game. you don't gain momentum. south carolina is sitting right there and south carolina is going to bring back the social conservative issues. by the way, rick perry is a guy who is strong on abortion. a guy who has a strong position in gay marriage and he appeals to the social conservative. if he is there with the money he's a major player. >> bret: agree? >> yeah, the potential is he invites somebody else to the dance not making a big play in iowa. if he made a big play and won it, won caucus, it could be over before it started. it makes strategic sense on one level that he dumps resources in there and had nothing to show for it except for embarrassment to overcome the rest of it there is a risk there from a front-runner to skip an early state. >> bret: we haven't talked about sa
gingrich, jon huntsman, senator santorum is not even on here. he is at 2%. plenty of 3%. steve? >> yeah, this is a very tough news for tim pawlenty. one reason i think he held the press conference last night, he needs to do everything he can to keep himself in the discussion and in the news. so he is giving major economic speech. gives a major foreign policy speech at a time when most strategists would say it's early to be doing that. but he needs to do that to make news and renape the discussion men your numbers are as paltry as they've been -- discussion when your numbers are as paltry as they've been. >> bret: anecdotally talking to people in iowa yesterday anthe day before, he still has support in iowa from folks who look at him as an alternative to mitt romney and people who like him. >> i think so. he does. he is having trouble expanding and gaining traction in a wider audience. i think one of the ways that it shows itself and the way he reacted in minnesota today. he didn't st protect his flank on this by avoiding people attributing what is happening to him. he got toh. he said i
is as arresting as that of jon huntsman and newt gingrich both of whom have ridden off into the sunset. >> definitely. pawlenty has had a problem with not being terribly charismatic and he the black hole of charisma in some ways, and at this point he is falling in the polls, and he was not high up to begin with, so he needs to do something to get his name out there. and you know, he had a problem at the debate when he refused to stand by his comments about mitt romney and people were questioning whether he was tough enough for this. this is not a problem for bachmann, because nobody questions whether she is tough enough. >> absolutely. >> so this is another moment where he needs to either stand up and make a name for himself or he might as well hang it up and go home. >> speaking of michele bachmann, and this pray away the gay story and her husband, it doesn't seem to go away, does it? it gained more fuel after video surfaced of gay barbarians going to the clinic and making a scene. last week marcus bachmann said he is neither homophobic nor converting a gay orientation, but it appears
tim pawlenty and jon huntsman are barely hanging on. and newt gingrich's campaign is on life support. so is this it? or is michele bachmann emerging as the tea party's battering ram against the willard mitt romney? joining me now is richard wolfe and with me, editor at large for salon.com, joan walsh. let me ask you first. is the bachmann threat a real threat, richard? >> well, she is a threat herself to mitt romney. but i actually think the space that she represents is more of a threat. look, she needs to call donald trump to figure out how this movie ends. can you rise very quickly on this kind of platform and then you sink very quickly. but what she is showing and what trump showed before her is that there is space for a populist insurgeant type of tea party candidate who can capture the spirit driving the base here. i personally don't think it will be her. i think it is going to be someone like rick perry or sarah palin but she is peaking too early. the one thing you don't do is too early in the summer before. >> are they waiting joan for another tea party hero to come from the w
did not raise lots and lots of money, although she did in the polls. but you've got mitt romney, jon huffman after stating about a month ago he's going to get into this race. the folks that are having a tough time raising money have to start there. >> joy, last gas, do you think, for pawlenty? >> well, you know what? i think what we are witnessing here is the battle for the second tier. i think mitt romney would have to be seen as the front-runner, though he hasn't done that great, he's still ahead in the minds of most front-runners. they have to take one another out because you can't want -- let's say if one of them became the nominee, the other couldn't be the vice presidential nominee because they're both from the same state. andbackman occupies a strange space in the republican base right now. really in a way, only in iowa could a lady who just sigh signed a pledge that said black kids were better off as slaves than they were under the first president, only in iowa could that person be the front-runner. but she fits that part of the bait. >> joe, let's talk about safe sarah palin
